Transcript Theme Update

In the interest of updating our themes to ensure you get access to the latest features, we have been busy updating the Transcript theme. The most noticeable updates are behind the scenes and will be seen in the new control panel. Here is a quick round-up of some of the exciting updates:


The theme has been updated to our latest framework which has already been introduced into the NewsPro and LinePress themes. Additionally, code has been optimized, and in some cases, completely re-written.

Theme Control Panel

Like our more recent themes, Transcript finally has the same theme options panel to easily configure your theme settings.

Inner-Page Slider

The inner-page slider automatically grabs all photos uploaded to a post and displays them in a neat format. It supports auto rotation, and can be enabled/disabled on theme control panel. With the latest update, you can even assign a tag to determine which posts display in that neat slider.

Improved Thumbnail Logic

Not only is the thumbnail logic more flexible, but it is also faster. You can set a thumbnail using WordPress’ built-in featured image functionality, setting a custom field, or setting the theme to use the first image in the body of the post.


The comment layout has been updated slightly for good measure.

Additional Enhancements

    I've customized a lot of my site. Will I lose things or have to redo them if i switch to the updated theme?

    • Mehmet   June 2, 2011 at 11:10 PM

      Yes, unfortunately to update your theme will cause you to loose all your customizations

  7. Tawanda Kanhema   July 8, 2011 at 11:22 AM

    I'd advise that you take note of all the customizations you make and save them in a Google Doc so that after upgrading your theme you dont have to do much as far as code is concerned…

    For newspapers, Linepress is the most professional grade theme so far (IMHO)… The image thumbnails under the menu bar, social integration and fonts put this theme in a class light years ahead of its competition. I am considering switching my website from Adv Newspaper to Linepress.

    Hi. I’d like to know how to show tags in posts in Transcript Theme. Is there a plugin? Should I write the CSS code? Which code lines should I write? Thanks!!

    Dear Mr. Ozek,

    I have had the Transcript theme since April 2011 and I was wondering if Gabfire Themes plans to create any more updates for this theme, as of today – Sunday, February 9, 2014?

      Hi Michael

      Dear Michael,

      This theme was updated in 2013 and we have no plan to update it any further unless it gives some conflict with any WordPress versions. As of now it works fine with latest version of WordPress.

      With in next month, we might only make a little changes in Archive magazine layout to increase the number of posts for that page from 8 to 10.

      • Michael Weaver, Jr.   February 9, 2014 at 2:18 PM

        Hi Mr. Ozek!,

        Thank you for replying to my question so quickly! I appreciate it. :)

        So the latest version of Transcript is 2.7, correct?

        I’m asking because I recently had to reinstall WordPress and when I installed Transcript, it stated there is an update available but I cannot find it and when I look at the version I currently have online, it’s 2.7.

        In your honest opinion, if you’re not going to continue to update Transcript, which other theme, would you recommend? To tell you a little about my website, it’s a website dedicated to professional wrestling and/or sports-entertainment. I currently do not have everything online right now but when I do, I have product reviews, interviews, pay-per-view previews and reports, and historical wrestling information.

        Thanks again,

    Hi Michael,

    The update message is an error.please disregard it. 2.7 is the latest version.

    As for your website, you do not need to change your theme but if you want to give a facelift, I’d suggest you to get Connect theme as IMO it would suit your site very well.
